How to tell if my baby is blind

My daughter was born with a membrane on her eye that didn't dissolve before birth. It's on her left eye. The best way to explain it is that she basically sees out of her left eye like she is looking through a smudge on a window. It's very frustrating for her. I kick myself sometimes for not noticing little things, like turning her head to look out of the right eye (something I didn't notice at all until after I found out she had this and then I started remembering little things she did). For her we just need to patch the right eye a few hours a day to force her to use her left eye.
